Pre-Cut Lash Strips vs. Studio Lashes - What's The Difference?

Lash extensions have become a staple part of beauty routines worldwide, offering more than just an enhancement - they provide a remarkable boost in confidence and a true sense of empowerment to everyone who wears them!

How long do lash extensions take?

Unlike regular lash strips that need to be reapplied daily, permanent lash extensions offer the luxury of waking up each morning looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed without the need for eye makeup! This saves a lot of time and hassle in the mornings. It's crucial to note that opting for lash appointments at a studio can be a time-consuming process. A single treatment can stretch between 1.5 to 3 hours, and to make matters worse, you find yourself back there ~3 weeks for a refill!

Time is precious, and you'll save a ton of it by applying DIY pre-cut lash bands or extensions under the natural lash line. Though it may sound unconventional at first (under the lash line?!), with a bit of practice, applying GirlGotLashes pre-cut extensions is no more challenging than gluing on regular lash strips. The big win? GGL extensions are practically invisible! They blend seamlessly with your natural lashes, remaining undetected even from an overhead view! This gives you that pro-lash extension vibe - whether you're aiming for volume or a natural look. Once you've got the hang of it, you can apply your GirlGotLashes extensions in as little as 15 minutes! ⚡️💕

How long do lash extensions last?

Pre-cut lash extensions like ours, applied underneath your natural lashes, last 5-7 days before it's time to remove them and apply a fresh pair. Granted, it's a shorter wear compared to professional lash extensions that can last up to 3 weeks. But let's talk about the dreaded "spidery" phase as you await your next refill... Or perhaps we can stop there! While professional extensions may look stunning fresh out of the studio, over time, individual lashes start bidding adieu which creates unsightly gaps. If you take on the role of your own lash stylist, you won't need to wait for anyone of anything! (Total BOSS BABE move!) Even if a segment happens to come loose, you'll have everything you need to reattach it yourself.

How much do lash extensions cost?

This one's easy. Professional lash extensions can cost anywhere between 100 to 300 dollars each month, depending on the method. The EasyPeasyFalsies Box from GirlGotLashes is priced at €36,90. It includes 5 pairs of lash extensions, each lasting you 5-7 days.

Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?

Professional lash extensions from the studio are designed to last up to 3 weeks, requiring a strong adhesive. However, this adhesive can be quite potent and may lead to irritation. For this reason, professional extensions must be applied by trained lash technicians in a studio, typically with the client's eyes closed. 

Now, enter GirlGotLashes extensions. Our extensions are designed with a different approach - they are meant to last up to a week, using a far gentler adhesive. This makes them suitable for non-commercial use, safe for non-professionals, and they can even be applied without risk below the natural lash line with the eyes wide open! We believe in making the process easy, safe and accessible to everyone.

But what about removal? It's a breeze with our LET IT GO Remover liquid. Apply it on and around your lash extensions, let it sit briefly (20-30 seconds does the trick), and gently brush or slide the extensions away from your lashes. It's a stress-free process designed to minimize any potential damage to your natural lashes.

Now, once you've removed the extensions, grab a fine micro-brush to easily comb out any remaining glue from your natural lashes.

Pro Tip: For some overnight lash love, apply coconut or castor oil to your natural lashes using a spoolie. It's super nourishing! Then, the next morning, apply a new set of lash extensions. Before you do so, remember to cleanse your natural lashes with micellar water to remove any oils.


Ultimately, it boils down to personal preference. If you don't mind scheduling a professional lash extension appointment every three weeks, enjoy taking the time out for it, are are comfortable with the associated cost, then studio lashes might be the ideal choice for you.

On the other hand, if you're into self-pampering, treasure those moments of self-care, enjoy experimenting with lash looks, and aim to save both time and money, then GirlGotLashes lash extensions are the perfect fit for you! Why not give them a try and see for yourself? ✨
